MNC Supports the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer Initiative

March 6, 2014

The First Nations, Inuit and Métis Cancer Control Initiative launched today, stems from an Action Plan which was originally released in 2011, representing a collaborative effort by the national Aboriginal organizations and individuals working to improve cancer eradication among the Aboriginal peoples in Canada. The new initiative is intended to advance improvements in prevention, detection and the continuity of care, in a culturally responsive and safe way, particularly for and with First Nations, Inuit and Métis cancer patients focusing on the journey from cancer diagnosis through to patient discharge during cancer care to their home community.

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) is investing a total of 10.2 million in the implementation of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Cancer Control Initiative with nine jurisdictions from 2014-2017.

In his opening remarks, President Chartier welcomed the launch of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer initiative, and spoke to the ongoing health struggles and challenges confronting the Métis Nation. “We recognize the work that CPAC has been doing to move this initiatives forward and are extremely pleased that the Métis are included” President Chartier stated and that “we are extremely pleased to be part of it”.

Also in attendance at the meeting were MPs Stella Ambler and Rob Clark.
